San Luis Obispo leaders are talking about climate change.

The SLO Climate Coalition hosted a community meeting Thursday night at the library, and members of the coalition were out at the Downtown SLO Farmers' Market letting people see new technology first hand.

The events are in support of San Luis Obispo's goal of carbon neutrality and its adoption of an all-electric reach code.

City officials discussed with community members why it's important that all buildings go electric.

"This is one of the biggest components to getting the carbon emissions out of our atmosphere as the City Council and the SLO Climate Coalition push for a set goal, which is the most ambitious goal in the nation," said Justin Bradshaw, Outreach Coordinator for SLO Climate Coalition.

The goal the City of San Luis Obispo set is to be carbon neutral by 2035.
